Ab-solutely sore!

I pushed a pretty tough workout a couple days ago. . .and included some intense ab workout. Yesterday my entire mid section was sore. Sitting up from a laying down position was difficult (and painful). Today however it is not so bad. This is good sign. When I coughed all the time from Cystic Fibrosis, my abs were always rock solid and I honestly never found a workout that ever made them sore. BUT now, they are 'less solid' haha, and I am focusing on getting them firm and toned again. I am quite happy they are sore which indicates there is plenty of room for improvement. . .Oh by the way they are sore from doing 40 crunches on a slant~ It was tough!

Doing Laps

Today was a very nice day! It was in the mid 90's, so I took advantage of such beautiful weather and hit the pool for a nice swim. I worked on my breast stroke, my freestyle and my sidestroke. . then finished off with a nice back float and enjoyed the warm and sunny weather :) I soaked up a little sun (not too much) and of course didn't stay out long enough to get a sunburn. All in all I realized I am out of 'swimming shape' and I was reminded of why I love this sport!

Sore Legs

Boy are my legs tight! Yesterday wasn't too bad. . but it seems to hit my body worse on the 2nd day after working out. On Friday I worked my legs by adding some leg presses with some weight. I really, really want to get sexy legs :) I know maybe it sounds silly, but at least it is a goal. Not just sexy, but toned and strong as well~

I should take a 'before' and at the end of the summer take an 'after' picture and see if it shows much difference :)

Back to the treadmill

Today. . . I had to make a decision. It was a beautiful warm sunny day outside which called to me "Jamie, come swim and lay out". The powerful urge to throw on my swimsuit and lather myself up with tanning oil was almost uncontrollable. HOWEVER, I also had the thought about today being a great day to hit the gym and start back into my routine. I definitely lost some ground, but that will soon enough come back. Now that it's getting so warm I can start to alternate my gym workouts with some swimming!

Speaking of swimming. . . I went to ROSS dress for less and found a GREAT bargain~ I used my birthday gift certificate because I just couldn't let this deal pass me by. I bought a super nice $72.00 Speedo one piece swimsuit for only $20.00 How awesome is that?! Way awesome. It's hard swimming very seriously when all I have is a 2 piece :)

I do know there are a few people who check in on this blog once in a while. So, I thought I would post an update.

I unfortunately will not be able to attend the games this year. Mostly due to financial reasons along with not having anyone available to attend them with me as a support to me. Bryan's school schedule is that to where he would not be able to go and most of both our families have events in their lives that conflict. I understand, therefore I am just more determined to make it to the 2012 games and 'hopefully' they will be a little more West Coast :)

Other than that, not too much to update. I had a great time while I was in IDaho the last few weeks and got some horse back riding in. It is warming up (90's) in Phoenix and therefore I will be hitting the pool soon. I really need to bust my butt and get back into a routine. How easy it is to skip a day which can quickly become weeks, then even months :)

I have a scheduled 'post-transplant check-up' in Pittsburgh the second week in May. . so I really need to kick it into gear and get into tip top shape for that~
